Project dashboard is a custom designed Excel estimating spreadsheet for the construction industry. It will keep all your data at your fingertips throughout every project. The sheet makes it easy to estimate the cost, track hours, material allowances, product selections, changes, billing, and the vendor payout’s for each project. It comes with a fully customizable Word document that is a 6 page project assessment form that helps you identify all pre-existing conditions. This tool will help you estimate faster and more accurately!
Tracks the following data :
Division number , description , quantity , unit , material cost , material total , labor cost , labor total , unit cost for material & labor combined , allowance total , hrs. /unit , hrs. total , labor /unit , hourly labor total.
Example : If you know that on average it takes your electrician 1 hr. to run the box, pipe and wiring for a typical switch you can put that entry into the sheet so that when you get all finished with the estimate you will have a good idea of time needed to perform all the tasks in total Hrs , Material & Labor.
Custom : If you do not need all the divisions we will custom make a dashboard for just your specific needs. Example ; if you are an electrician and want just electrical we will make it just for you!
This sheet is for anyone that wants to save time and be more accurate. The better you are at excel the easier it will be to use. The sheet is still in progress of being developed. We have used it for several years now and still find ways to improve on the design. The bottom line is it makes it very easy for you to get quick costing and track your projects. So if you cannot estimate as quickly as you would like maybe this is for you! After you buy it and use it you will see how fast you can estimate. As you see room for improvement , we welcome any new ideas.
